Flooring for Offices

Olivers Contracts can offer durable and stylish flooring solutions in the business environment to meet a variety of client needs.

Why Flooring is Important in Offices?

Flooring in offices plays a crucial role in functionality and aesthetics. While it must be durable and practical to meet the area’s demands, it also sets the tone for creating a comfortable and productive environment for staff. The choice of flooring can reflect a company’s brand identity and values.

Types of Office Flooring:

Carpet Tiles in Offices



Carpet Tiles – The most popular type of office flooring is carpet tiles. They are easier to install with furniture in place and can be removed to allow access to raised access panels or replaced easily if soiled. Beyond their practical benefits, the broad range of available designs makes them an attractive option. With choices to fit all budgets and significantly more sustainable options available, there is an opportunity to be creative while enhancing the office space’s look and feel.

Vinyl tiles for offices

Vinyl Flooring for Offices



Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT’s)offer a stylish look while being extremely durable and easy to clean and maintain. Despite a higher initial cost compared to carpet tiles, LVTs should remain in better condition for longer, especially in areas prone to food and drink spillage. Therefore, they are a good option for breakout areas. Design choices include wood-effect planks, stone-effect tiles, and some funky abstract options.

Sustainable Office Flooring



Sustainability has become a significant consideration when choosing new floor coverings, particularly in office spaces. Flooring manufacturers have responded by adopting more sustainable practices and producing eco-friendly floor coverings. Olivers Contracts can help specify and supply a wide variety of sustainable products and offer solutions for disposing of existing carpet tiles.

FAQ’s for Office Flooring :

Our office is busy during the day and full of furniture. How would you fit new flooring?

We regularly install new floor coverings in offices, mostly outside normal working hours such as evenings and weekends. We can move heavier furniture and equipment around as we work from one side of the office to the other, accommodating your schedule.

Can carpet tiles give the office a ‘high-end look’?

Absolutely. Creative and intricate designs are available for carpet tiles, carefully crafted to create specific moods and ambiance within the office space. Sometimes, the tile patterns blend so seamlessly that it’s exceedingly difficult to detect that they are carpet tiles.

Which floor covering helps with noise reduction?

Certainly. While LVTs offer greater sound reduction than timber flooring, carpet tiles excel in noise reduction. A typical standard specification carpet tiles or commercial carpets will have a sound reduction of 20 dB.
